Color This Quote

Over at Artist In Blogland they have this challenge once a month called, "Color This Quote"
What they do is give you a quote and you interpret that into your crafting and then enter it into their challenge. I've had a great time joining in on these challenges and I always love their quotes.
For this month the Quote is:
"Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second -rate version of somebody else"
Judy Garland

I love this quote and always wanted to do a journal page with the challenge and I had this fun background in my journal. I had done this background quite awhile ago and then just left it. I just used rolodex cards, sprays and stamps to create it.
Today I went back to it and created this page for the challenge.

I added the yellow dots, stars, girls and quote to the page. Everything else was done previously. 
I used lots of Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions sprays and stencils, Distress Ink, Tim Holtz water mark stamp, Wendy Vecchi stamps and Dina Wakley Stencils. I also used my white gel pen to go around the stars and the girl.
I love how the page is nice and bright.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I hope you have a great weekend!!
